Another Approach to Anemone - Lin Frye

Another Approach to Anemone
1/8 sheet
Arches 140#CP

Though these flowers are rather strong in their structure and their petals are firm and often colorful, I wanted to try a different approach to them....I kept the firm outline of their petals and centers, but wanted to soften their surroundings to feel a bit like the softness of springtime ...

This 'differing' of approach is always interesting to me -- to 'see' perhaps how someone else might paint the same subject in a style or way that is as different as their handwriting from my own ... Always something new to learn and consider.

A busy day today and tomorrow -- yesterday was incredibly beautiful - but hot - in the 80s! and we're due for a repeat today. But tomorrow and the weekend? A plunge into winter again as we hit the 30s - and all of us worry about the flowers and fruits that have been tempted by the warmth ...

Have a great day!

  1. Absolutely beautiful. I love the pastel tones and the flowers stand out just enough to be recognized. Great job doing something different.

  2. Really lovely Lin, almost abstract .

  3. Very pretty. It is very soft. Hope you don't get quite as cold as predicted.

  4. Thank you all --! I find 'being loose' a whole lot harder than it looks! LOL
